    Looks like they tried to deliver my stuff today, but I wasn't home to sign! Will pick up on the way home. That's freaky fast!

    Got my parts today whoaa fast. The brakes are not dinner pads, ohhh well still a good deal. All the parts are one most include the instruction sheet. There are no extra olives in the brake bag though does include the clamp for resizing. Pretty happy with the prices the speed of shipping and what I got. Would have much preferred icetech

    Bit of an exaggeration. Add two pair of finned pads from Art's and you'll have two full brakes and 4 sets of pads for $195 total. Feel free to share with the group if you can beat that.

    The big take-away from this for me: buy the SLX brakes since you're not getting finned pads either way (although you do get sintered pads w/ the XT). As good as the current generation of Shimano discs are, the $60/brake price on SLX might be the best price/performance brake value in MTB history.

    I got an email from Ribble that says this 10% Shimano promotion ends on April 8th. Remember they are 8 hours ahead of west coast US, so don't wait until Tuesday night to order!

    Just got my order of an SLX drivetrain. Ordered Mar. 31 and got it in 6 business days to PA. Not too bad...all of my stuff looks like never installed OEM. Great deal, very happy.

    FYI. My XT brakes are backwards (right hand front) and the XT shadow rear der did not require the extra mounting link as described on the website.

    Now to research switching the brake lines...might need to get that Shimano bleed kit.

    Same here with my XT brakes. Guess that is how they run them across the pond. Shortened my lines and switched sides in half hour. Got new olives from lbs and reused the fitting. Lost some fluid but brakes still feel good. Going to bleed them this weekend.

    Thanks for that. I am still waiting too. I never got an order confirm e-mail. Wrote a note to them to see if the order had shipped and they never replied. Can't seem to log in to the website either. But my CC has been hit.

    for swapping and shortening slx brakes lines. they do not come with hose clamp or olive + inserts. buy olive+inserts that fit the hose type: SM-BH90-SB; you can not reuse inserts. for the hose clamp, i'm going to split and drill a wood block for a diy hose clamp.

    I only purchased olives and reused the inserts. No issues. Hose clamp would make it nice but not needed at all. I was able to push the insert by hand half way and then tapped with a small hammer while holding the line. Man up and muster your kung fu grip.

    That's really strange as I just got a notification slip and had to go pick mine up at the post office (like everyone else here). Someone must have signed for it, maybe you can check with USPS to see who?

    I got a reply from them that said because of the value of my order it was sent Royal Mail and there is no tracking number through them. Well, hopefully it gets here soon. I ordered the 1st and shipped the 2nd so will wait impatiently.

    Same here. Royal Mail shows it was "sorted" in NYC on April 4th and no activity since.

    I've got a package from Merlin that shows it was "sorted" March 27th... And nothing after.

    As someone who deals with a lot of international shipping - both as a buyer and a seller - you guys need to relax a bit. Once these orders go out, its a total crapshoot as to how long it is going to take to get to you. Its also a total crapshoot if you will get charged customs fees or not (seems like I get charged 1 out of every 10 shipments). Customs agencies are the most unpredictable factor in both equations, the shipper can only control how long it takes to get the item shipped from their warehouse. Tracking numbers aren't really any help either as they are slow to update especially when you are going from one countries carrier to another. Bottom line, be happy for the deal you got, but worst case scenario, it might take 3 weeks and you might get charged 10% customs fees. If that isn't acceptable, you should buy from a US based dealer.

    Like Olasher said, it can take a few days or a few weeks, patients is key. I placed two orders on the same day from Ribble, one order arrived on Friday which was only 4 days from when I placed my order, the other order shipped in a different box and has not arrived yet. I feel confident it will be here soon but case in point, 2 orders on the same day and will arrive on different dates.

    Mine arrived today. Definitely not finned pads for the XT. No bleed block. No olives.

    I places an order from Merlin 2-3 weeks ago and this Ribble order beat it.

    Are you sure it was customs? The CC will charge a foreign transaction fee that shows up separately on your statement.

    I made two orders. I cannot remember the dates, and can't find out since they never sent me a confirmation. But their site says they shipped on the 4th and the 8th. Both orders arrived together on Saturday (the 12th). Odd, but whatever works I guess.

    I have an order from a UK site from March 23rd.
    Received a Royal Mail "Despatch confirmation" March 24th.
    USPS show's it did something in Long Island, NY on March 27th.

    Still waiting...

    If it hits one month, I'm assuming a loss and demanding a full refund. Luckily I'll have PayPal buyer protection.

    I'm probably done with UK purchases

    I have two orders in one from Mar 31, shipped on Apr 4 and second that shipped on 10th.

    Out on the west coast in Canuckistan. Fingers crossed, but the more I read the comments the more prepared I am to file a non received claim.

    On a few orders from CRC in the past, purchase to receipt of goods was complete in under 3 weeks. Still hoping, but really wanting to get the new parts to bolt onto the new bike.

    I've got to give props to the Ribble customer service. They managed to track down what happened with my package and I collected it today.

    USPS had marked it as delivered on the 5th, but it's been sat at a nearby post office (not my local one) since then.

    Thumbs up for Ribble.

    Too funny, 15 minutes after I wrote the last post a got a package delivered to me. It was my first order Mar 31 order on Apr 4 shipping. So all in all 10 days shipping from the other side of the big pond across to the west coast. I guess I am just impatient with the new bike arriving and all.

    Order was XT brakes. Look great except for the chrome plastic top. But then again, as long as they work. Function over form.

    Now just to wait another week or so for the drive train bits.

    I suffered a tree-branch attack last weekend that destroyed my rear der. Been over a decade since the last time that happened, so I'm not complaining, but I'm now looking for a replacement. Ribble is cheapest if they link is included; if not, there are better alternatives.

    Yes. When I ordered there were two options for the XT Shadow+ rear der. This option sounded like it did not come with the standard mounting link. The option I ordered had a normal picture but a note at the bottom about ordering the standard mounting link separately. The rear der. I received was in fact the standard mount option with the extra link installed...no need to order the link separately.

    Update - still waiting on second order that has 3 x 10 Cranks, shifter set and XT cassette.

    I as away from the office for a few days and was hoping it would have been sitting in the office waiting for me when I returned. But not yet.

    Fingers crossed again.

    Took about a week to California. Got SLX brakes. They came with IS adapter mounts and lines were reversed. I switched them. No big deal. No retail boxes for any of my stuff. Not sure if they were cutting down on shipping costs or these were Take off parts.

    My $100 SLX crank came through in about a week and a half or so. Was not a retail packaged part, appears to be a OEM part, it came in a plastic bag, with instructions and all parts - new condition, and a great deal, just thought I should point it out.
